There is a lot of background information which will help students with the geographical and historical settings of the novel. There is also a good range of activities from gap fill exercises to translations.
– S Zammit, Teacher and Ind. Reviewer

The best resource I have reviewed in years. The first section really supports the students in researching and fully understanding the context of the novel, it is very effectively structured. The culture based activities are fantastic and provide a phenomenal insight into the Basque culture. The tasks are short or of medium length and engaging. I really like how there are translations into both languages, this is very effective.
